Christmas Party

Saturday was the Avlabari Branch Christmas party.  I think they had it early so that all the members could spend one last day with us.  Elder Offutt came in his full Georgian costume and everyone wanted to have their picture taken with him!  Elder Offutt and Elder Steggell will also be going home.
We visited for the first hour while the primary was getting ready for the nativity program and the Relief Society was getting the food ready in the kitchen.  Here is the final shot of Mary, Joseph, the Star, Angel and 3 wise men. 
 Two of our Elders were the Shepherds and then they all sang Silent Night.  The program went well - love to see the Primary kids!
 There was a great turn out and we got to say goodbye to so many good friends.  Of course there's Mzia our interpreter.
 and the Pratts.  I know we've only been with them for 4 months - but we feel like we've known them all our lives!
There were many other people there and we are so thankful that we had these 2 years to become friends with so many wonderful people.  THANK YOU for having the party before we left.  At the end we passed out Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - most had never tasted them before.
